So as far as storyline I agree with a lot of what you're saying and share the same sentiments. Especially re: Dmitri. I also felt like the big gaps they left in the story to force us to play the other houses was rough, as it took me nearly 90 hours to beat it once and I don't have that kind of time anymore. I'm sure multiruns would be faster, but still. Adored Ashe a ton, but also loved Mercedes, Annette, and Felix (my spouse).

The class system actually burned me in a lot of ways. Not only did I hate the gender locking, but some classes didn't feel like they had a natural home. Building up a thief? Stop at advanced class assassin because the bow knight is 100% different. And the fact that the fists class just blends in with War Master but isn't distinct anymore seemed off-putting. I agree about battle too. The game felt really good, and so very accessible to new and old players alike.

I also loved the EDM theme they played fighting the last boss LOL. I tweeted that Skrillex would have been so proud at those bass drops.

(cont.) I've already bought the Contra Collection and the Collection of Mana, and am really looking forward to the new Contra game, as well as the full remake of Trials of Mana. I am glad Konami hasn't given up on the run and gun game style, and moreso, that Contra is making such a beautiful return. The Mana series is always a solid action RPG, and I'm excited to play all of the games we're getting.

The last game I'm going to mention getting is MUA3: Black Order. I'm really only picking this up to co-op with a friend who loves the Marvel games, but MUA has always been a solid, fun "dungeon crawl" style action RPG. The addition of the new characters (including the Kamela Khan version of Ms. Marvel) warms my heart, and I'm so excited to see the roster. Four player co-op never gets old, in my eyes. I'm sure our adventures through Castle Crashers is a perfect testament to that.

Whew, sorry that was so long winded, and thanks for bearing with me lol.

(cont.) So I need something more concrete. I think that this will be a good way to get the more authentic experience, and again, if it's on the Switch, all the better.

The last bit was one of the few original IPs that caught my interest which is Oninaki, which looks hella charming. I don't know why it captivates me so much, but I'm very interested in seeing more/getting to play.

Nintendo - I was really happy with the announcements this year. Not the best E3 by any stretch, but solid to say the least. Starting with the Smash DLC characters, I am always happy to welcome another sword wielder into the fray. I didn't get into DQ (try as I might), so I don't have much love for the character itself, but the abilities he gets look wild. Kamikaze is going to be incredibly fun to use. Despite being trolled by what looked to be first a DKC announcement, followed by a Banjo announce, I was still pleased with seeing the franchise not totally abandoned. I don't know how they ended up with the rights/license to the character, but it was a pleasant surprise. And my god does he look adorable. Those big, googly eyes are wonderful.

Astral Chains is on my list because I'd buy anything developed by Platinum. They're such a solid studio.

FE:TH is adding a new mechanic I'm really interested in, and as much as I love the franchise I've never been one to buy all the games in the franchise (I missed Echoes and the one that came in two games after Awakening). But I love them enough that I'll get this.

Link's Awakening remake is probably the one I'm most excited about, and it looks so fucking charming. The OG games on the GB/C were whimsical and charming, and the new art direction are perfect to capture that. And Link looks just downright adorable. Have you seen the Amiibo for him? Too cute. The BotW sequel is also a huge surprise, but welcome. I loved the Twilight Princess vibes I got from it, and very curious how they'll approach this next game. I thought BotW was the pinnacle of Zelda, and I honestly didn't know how they could top it, so a sequel makes a ton of sense to me. I think the most underrated of the announcements but one that people should look into was Cadence of Hyrule. If you've never played Crypt of the Necrodancer, you honestly have no idea what you are missing. Skinning that game with Zelda just makes it 10x more appealing to me. (cont.)
